      i just dont get how evan dunham deserves barbosa the ufc likes dunham way too much barbosa deserves a top ten guy like guida or maynard (preferably not since hes had two title shots last year) that would awesome and it will help build either one

  3. Ryan M says:

    Is Dan Hardy gonna get cut when he loses this fight?

      • not sure, HIV positive says:

        I hope not. Even tho hes on quite a losing streak, he goes out to put on a show. I love watching him bang, and him and Ludwig will do that. I’m rooting for him!

        • BobbyLemons says:

          Amen. Everyone says Hardy is only kept on to maintain British fans.

          I’m British, and I think thats bullshit. I couldn’t give a fuck where a fighters from, and don’t know another guy here who does..

          I like Dan Hardy, because he does indeed always put on a show. And I do believe thats why he’s kept his contract.

          Though I do agree he should probably be cut if he loses this fight (even if only for his own good). I hope he can secure that W and keep fighting in the UFC.
